Central Cumberland Election Per sonating Case. TO THE EDITOll OF THE CCTOIISHIILAXI) AMUS, Sib, — The above case having assumed such importance, particularly as regard tho char acter aud reputation of tho candidates, I, as one of them, besr to assure my friends in Parramattii and Central Cumberland that I had nothing whatever to do with it, either by act, word, or deed.

Trusting you will give space in your next Saturday's issue for this repudiation and de claration, to oblige. — .Yours, etc., JOHN THORPE. Macquario-street, Parramatta, ? March 20, 1SS9.

Departure of Monsignor Rigney. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 23 March 1889
Departure of Monsignor Rigney. St. Patrick's Day was celebrated in Parramatta by tho presentation of ad dresses and testimonials to the Right Keverend Monsignor Rigney, who took leave-taking of his old congregation on that day. Our readers aro thoroughly acquainted with tho motive which indu ced the old veteran priest to vacate the important parish of Parramatta and re move to the obscure charge of Prospect. This single act reflects the character of Monsignor Riguey. His devotion to the Church would not permit him to remain in charge whon ho folt that tho worli wns getting beyond him and that a man less advanced in years could do it more justice. Ho might have re mained on in Parramatta in compara tive ease and comfort if ho had so wish ed, but ho felt that this could not bo dono without neglecting personally the increasing duties of tho parish. Ho pre ferred to deny himself this comfort in his advancing age, in order that tho Church might not suffer, and conse quently resigned the ...
Local Topics. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 23 March 1889
Local Topics. The inoro frequent tip concerning tho Anauij Cup is that it will become tho trophy of tho Coateses ; but, us is well known, there's often a slip 'twixt ii cup and :i tip. There are probably still living iti the Parra nuitta district a few 'old identities' who can remember the Trial of Queen Caroline, and the historic uon mi rieunlo witnesses who figured therein. Colonel Airey has evidently a memory just as grip-less as that of those one time notorious individuals. The 'Evening News ' says that a bull dog off chain is the best remedy for the fruit post denominated 'larrikin.' The remedy is, however, not so easily applied when tho pest in question travels with another bull dog— as he often does. 'Tis to be hoped that tho Minister of Justioo will probe to tho bottom that Grecnhill v. Maher mortgagoinystory — nhoetwhat of fraud's in it homo to tho right party — and get the mis creant ' sent up ' for an adequate number of years. If it be true that the Government contem plat...

It would be well if no apology be given to Hornsby for the unfounded accusations made by them against the Auburns. Thanking you ...

Byrnes' speeches wore interesting at the time of tho election, wo supposed wo hud seen and hoard the last of them when the occasion of their utteranco had passed. However, as they have appeared, largely, in your paper, in Mr. Clias. Ernest Byrnes' letter, they may perhaps bo examined with advantage ; and seeing that I took moro than a passing interest in the late contest for Parramatta and elsewhere, I beg room for this rejoinder. Wo cannot tell just now whether or not 'another aud a fiercer contest ' is looming. However, instead of shuddering at Protection, wo Freetraders purpose to convince the sincere, and other advocates of tho other side, that thoy aro in error, or that their time is 'not yet awhile.'
